Affogato Cake - Silky luxurious cake with espresso cream! #holiday #espresso #cake

In the last couple years I have gone from a non-coffee drinker to a serious java connoisseur.

You know the story… I eased in with mochas and lattes. Then at one point had a black coffee out of necessity on a really sleepy day and was hooked.

Then to seal the deal, this past summer we spent several weeks in Italy.

Every morning we would trot down to the corner cafe to do breakfast Italian-style. We ordered dark double shots of espresso (doppio espresso) and tiny pastries, then stood at the counter and made light conversation.

Ok. Really, we just listened to other peoples’ conversations in Italian and tried our hardest to understand. But still, it made us feel like we were fitting into the culture a little bit.

We drank espresso and cappuccino as often as we could in Italy because it was so rich in flavor. Honestly, I’d never had coffee that tasted so deep and vibrant, like tasting layers in fine wine. On occasion, we ordered our daily thimble-full of gelato with a shot of espresso over the top. This simple Italian treat is known as affogato!

Drinking these tiny shots of intense coffee made us want an espresso maker in the worst way.

When we got home we pondered whether we would really use an espresso maker. Or would it sit on our counter top, looking pretty, but wasting space?

After a few weeks we missed our daily dose of espresso and decided it was time to learn to make it ourselves.

Lt. Dan has become the official barista in our house, making luscious power-packed shots of espresso every morning with our new KitchenAid Pro Line Espresso Maker.

He also makes me cappuccino, and although his foam-art needs a little work, the foam itself is marvelous. With the frothing arm on the espresso maker, he can steam and froth ultra silky foam, just like we had in Italy.

I’ve got him studying youtube clips on latte foam art so he can make my cappuccino look as pretty as it tastes!

He’s a good man.

It’s rewarding to make rich espresso and espresso drinks at home in the morning, but it’s also fun to BAKE with espresso!

Today’s amazing holiday treat is a cake inspired by the coffee and treats we enjoyed in Italy this summer, Affogato Cake.

How to Make Affogato Cake - Silky luxurious cake with espresso cream! #holiday #espresso #cake

Affogato Cake is similar to a tres leches cake, yet incorporates a hefty dose of freshly brewed espresso, so the moist silky texture oozes a taste of Italy in every bite.

Start by baking a simple two-layer sponge cake. Then mix fresh espresso with sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk, and vanilla extract to make an affogato cream to pour over the top.

Pour the espresso mix over the sponge cakes and allow them to soak up all the creamy-coffee essence.

Then stack them with a layer of whipped cream in the middle, and of course, more whipped cream on top!

This simple, yet elegant, holiday treat will steal the show at any gathering this season.

(Even on Thanksgiving!)

The espresso saturated cake layers are over-the-top in taste, texture, and visual appeal. Proving once again, that getting an espresso maker was a good decision for us.

Silky Affogato Cake! This traditional italian treat, glorified into an amazing cake, oozing with sweet vanilla cream and espresso.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened (1 stick)
  • 1 cup sugar + 1/4 cup for whipped cream
  • 3 teaspoons vanilla extract, divided
  • 5 eggs
  • 12 ounce can evaporated milk
  • 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
  • 5 ounces espresso
  • 2 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • Cocoa powder for garnish

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour two 8-9 inch cake pans and set aside. Mix the flour, baking powder and salt together in a small bowl. Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, 3-5 minutes. Then add 2 teaspoons of vanilla.
  2. Crack the eggs into a measuring pitcher. Then with the mixer running, alternate adding the eggs and flour mixture until just combined. Scrape the bowl and mix again for 30 seconds. Divide the cake batter evenly between the two pans and bake for 20 minutes, until golden on top.
  3. Cool for 10 minutes, then flip the cakes out of the pans onto wax paper lined plates. Meanwhile, whisk the evaporated milk, condensed milk, espresso and remaining 1 teaspoon of vanilla together. Set aside.
  4. Poke both cakes with a fork thoroughly, to help the espresso mix absorb. Slowly pour half the mixture over each cake and allow them to sit and soak it all up while you make the whipped cream.
  5. Using a clean bowl and electric mixer, whip the heavy cream with 1/4 cup sugar until firm peaks form. To assemble: carefully flip one of the cake layers onto a platter with a shallow rim, and peel off the wax paper. Scoop about half of the whipped cream onto the cake and spread evenly. Then carefully flip the second cake layer on top and remove the wax paper. Spread the remaining whipped cream on the top and sprinkle with cocoa powder. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

  1. CHposted December 19, 2017 at 1:12 pm Reply

    I just made this cake for a company holiday party. A few tips/tricks I learned and tweaked:

    -There is very little rise in this cake and it’s a little dense (I assume to hold its shape for the coffee). Keep in mind that if you want a thicker cake, double the batter or use a smaller pan. The cakes are thin like the pictures above.
    -The coffee mixture makes a bit too much. I didn’t use it all as I didn’t want my cake completely saturated with no structure. I poked the holes and let it sit for 15-20 minutes to absorb all it could, then took off the soak plates. The cakes were still perfectly strong enough to lift and work with and still released syrup when pressed with a fork.
    -I was able to bake the cakes one day and assemble the whole thing the next day after refrigerating the dry cakes.
    -MOST IMPORTANTLY: I used a stabilized whipped cream with mascarpone. If you use just whipped cream as in the recipe, it won’t hold for longer than a couple of hours and your cream will melt right off. You can only do this right before serving. With stabilized cream, my cream topping held for more than a day and was perfect and delicious. Whip 8 oz unsweetened mascarpone cheese with 1 cup sugar and 1 tsp vanilla in a cold bowl until combined. Then add 2 cups ice cold whipping cream and whip until stiff peaks form. This cream is stable enough even for piping.

    Everyone loved the cake and the strong espresso flavor! It’s a little like tiramisu, especially if you do the mascarpone cream. If you don’t have an espresso machine like in the article, go to your local coffee shop and talk them into making you a small coffee cup full of 6 shots like I did! I brought the cup home and made this cake :)

    Are you KIDDING ME!? Wow – what a giveaway.

    Oh, okay. I’m calm now. Mostly.

    Favorite coffee drink? Espresso. Because, really, I try to stay away from grown up drinks. But my husband has always loved the espresso, being from South America and taking his coffee quite seriously.

    I also love to use it for lovely tiramisu. I might need to make this cake immediately after Thanksgiving – since the house is currenltly taken over by all things Thanksgiving. A tres leches, but coffeed up? Sounds right up our alley!

    I purchased a red KitchenAid mixer for my sister for her 30th birthday. It took me awhile to save up the money (both of us are supporting our parents who are elderly and unable to work any more), however, seeing the look on her face when she unwrapped the gift was priceless! We would absolutely LOVE to win this espresso machine. We don’t go out for coffee much, so the coffee that we do drink is made with a coffee maker that’s about five years old now. Winning the espresso maker would definitely do wonders for the kitchen and for our caffeine-driven lives.
